Most everyone is familiar with the first day of April. It's known as 'April Fools' Day' and it's a great time to play a practical joke on friends and family in the North East.

This is for people who like to play a prank on co-workers, friends, family and even your kids! But where did this April Fools' Day come from and I wonder who the first 'fool' was to be victimized by a friendly prank.

Another name for it is 'All Fools' Day' and, historically, it began sometime during the 1500's when France switched from the Julian Calendar to the Gregorian Calendar.

But regardless of how and when it started, it's here and we thought we would share a fun, practical joke for you to use, should you want to exercise a prank or two on a well-deserving friend.

Popcorn or Styrofoam popcorn in the car is a classic. Sunroofs make it more fun!

No need to wait until Halloween. Bring these to the office for those irritating co-workers, or send them to the neighbors as a 'gift' because their dog won't stop pooping on your lawn.

 

Other pranks that people have done were putting grass seed in the computer board of a co-workers computer, installing an air horn behind a door as a door handle wall protector and painting a bar of soap with clear nail polish and putting it in the shower.
